Louth Town 5-0 Worsborough Bridge Athletic
A minutes silence was observed before kick off in memory of junior player Jordan Eyre and Kerry Coggle founder of Louth Town.
A lower than usual attendance saw the White Wolves turn in a commanding performance over a lack lustre Worsbrough Bridge.
In fact it was nearly all one way traffic right from the off. Greg Andrews was first to come close, but after he had already beaten the ‘keeper his shot was too timid and cleared by a defender. Jamie Coulson then came close with an off the post effort.
His first of three first half goals came from a superb Jordan Smith corner, where Coulson rose head and shoulders above everyone else to power home.
His second was via a delightful pass from Rainer-Mistry, which left Coulson clear to beat the ‘keeper, and just before half time he made it a hat trick when a defensive error gifted him an open goal.
Louth played confident and fluid football, rarely getting themselves into trouble and if they did they were well capable of correcting the situation.
Tim Lowe and Dan Barrett fitted well into the defensive framework allowing Callum Hyland and others more freedom to move forward.
Indeed Hyland looked very dangerous in front of goal and got his reward when a second consecutive Smith corner was headed home.
On 74 minutes Coulson netted his fourth and then was substituted to a standing ovation.
By this time the frustration and strain was showing on Worsbrough as they received three cautions and a straight red card.
Assistant Manager Mike Armstrong’s said: “It’s been a tough week for the club, so it was great the lads put a show on to lift the moods.
“It was a very professional and disciplined performance by the lads. It was a great game to watch, and see the whole squad do their jobs. If we play like this till the end of the season you never know what could happen.”
